At STH we have been leading the way on AMD EPYC 3000 series coverage. One of the key trends in the industry today is the infrastructure that will handle 5G networks and the edge applications that they will enable. For many years, Intel has held a virtual stranglehold on the market.
If you want to learn more about the AMD EPYC 3000, an Intel Xeon D-1500 and Xeon D-2100 series competitor, check out some of the following resources on STH.
AMD EPYC 3000 Series Overview
The AMD EPYC 3000 series is an embedded SoC that is comprised of single or dual die parts. AMD’s initial focus was on the single die parts which offer four or eight core. The dual die parts that we will see more of going forward offer twelve or sixteen cores.
Die counts impact features with single die parts getting 32x PCIe 3.0 lanes and dual DDR4 channels while the dual die parts get twice as many. In our testing, we have found the AMD EPYC 3000 series to use less power than the Intel Xeon D-2100 series yet at similar performance levels.
AMD EPYC 3000 Series Benchmarks and Reviews
At STH, we have more than just news coverage of the AMD EPYC 3000 series. We also have reviews of several SoC’s and platforms. We are going to keep a list of our SoC and platform reviews here.
AMD EPYC 3000 Series STH Reviews to Date
So far, STH has benchmarked and reviewed all four of the single die AMD EPYC 3000 series parts.
- AMD EPYC 3251 Benchmarks and Review
- AMD EPYC 3201 Benchmarks and Review
- AMD EPYC 3151 Benchmarks and Review
- AMD EPYC 3101 Benchmarks and Review
One can read through the various reviews to see the differences between the SKUs. AMD has done a great job of differentiating the platforms based on differentiating its CPU features.
Supermicro M11SDV Platform Reviews
Supermicro was the first to offer widely available AMD EPYC 3000 series platforms in mITX form factors that are direct replacements for the company’s Intel-based embedded products.
- Supermicro M11SDV-8C-LN4F Review
- Supermicro M11SDV-8CT-LN4F Review
- Supermicro M11SDV-4C-LN4F Review
- Supermicro M11SDV-4CT-LN4F Review
STH has reviewed all Supermicro AMD EPYC 3000 series platforms and shown how they relate to the company’s Intel offerings. Supermicro has a M11SDV-8C+-LN4F that is the same as the M11SDV-8C-LN4F except that it uses an active cooler. We will add future barebone server related reviews as they come online.
